New York underground metal band Grey Skies Fallen has begun an Indiegogo campaign in efforts to raise money for the band's forthcoming EP/album "The Many Sides of Truth."
This will be Grey Skies Fallen's first physical release since 2006's "Two Way Mirror" full-length. "The Many Sides of Truth" follows 2012's "Introspective" and 2010's "Along Came Life" which were digital-only releases available for free on the band's website.
"The Many Sides of Truth" will be released on both CD and vinyl. The vinyl version, (a first for the band) will be pressed in limited numbers, and come in a variety of colors. As a vinyl-exclusive bonus track, Grey Skies Fallen will record the Death song "Perennial Quest." Cover artwork will be crafted by Travis Smith.
Though unsigned for their entire history, (save for a brief relationship with the late Don Decker and Nightfall Records in 2000) the band is now seeking assistance from fans. Many interesting perks are offered, ranging from band merchandise, to having the band play a show in your house for you and your friends. More...
New York progressive dark metal act Grey Skies Fallen has announced the release of the band's latest EP, "Introspective." The EP can be streamed on the Grey Skies Fallen Reverbnation page.
The track listing for "Introspective" is as follows:
1. Everything and Nothing At All
2. When Promise Lies
New York metal act Grey Skies Fallen has posted an extended version online of the band's single "The Visionary," which can be heard via Facebook. Grey Skies Fallen also commented:
"As promised, here's the extended version of The Visionary. We all forgot about this intro, but looking back, we should've kept it in. What do you guys think?"
New York metal band Grey Skies Fallen has made their latest release, "Along Came Life" available as a free download on their website.
The 2010 EP now joins GSF's first 3 full length albums as free downloads, making them one of the few active bands offering their entire discography for free.
Grey Skies Fallen is also slated to enter the studio to record the new EP, "Introspective" this fall. The band is aiming for a late 2011 release. Bass guitar will once again be handled by Paul LaPlaca and Travis Smith will provide artwork for this digital-only release.
The new album is a return to the melodic death/doom sound of "Tomorrow's in Doubt." The end result will be a 20-minute opus, as well as two other songs which will make up "Introspective." GSF has stated in the past that they are now releasing EP's digitally once or twice a year instead of doing traditional full-length albums every couple of years.
Each week in Unearthing the Metal Underground, we'll be putting a few quality underground bands in the spotlight in an attempt to get the word out about them. This week I am exploring various talented bands in the New York scene.
First up is Staten Island thrash metal band Sanitarius. At first listen it may sound like a some Metallica/Testament clone, but Sanitarius takes influences from melodic death metal and progressive metal, this band surely isn’t a run of the mill band. The singer Robb Quartararo’s rasp is very similar to that of James Hetfield, but he’ll add in screams ala Slayer. Musically they explore more progressive arrangements and the drummer Dave Cordero adds in interesting fills. Both guitarists are extremely talented and are very tasteful. Check out their songs on MySpace and Reverb Nation pages.

New York's Grey Skies Fallen have issued the following update regarding their "new direction" regarding the way they will be releasing future albums:
"For the last 12 years, we have followed the same path over and over again - we'd write a lot of stuff, record it, release it on our own, see the album be forgotten about almost instantly, sink into the dreaded realm of 'unproductive-ness,' fighting, breaking up, opening GSF organic health food chains, getting back together, argue some more, and then someone will say. 'Hey! We should do an album!' While the music always changes on each album, the process that comes before or after, does not." More...

"Rehearsals are beginning to occur on a regular basis, and album #4 is taking shape. Most of the material is written, so we're just fixing some things, and of course adding new stuff."

New York progressive death metallers, Grey Skies Fallen, have posted the following update on their myspace page regarding their decision to go on hiatus:
"This is a trying time for the band. The four of us have pretty much agreed to put Grey Skies Fallen on the back burner. It's been an up and down eleven years; mostly down."
"People in bands know the sacrifice that goes into it..the effort, and the emotional strain. I think all of that has caught up to us. We need to step back and take a breather."
"We have tried very hard to make good music for you guys to enjoy; we've even resorted to giving it away for free online. The reaction from that has been great. I am thrilled that our music has gotten out to many people that otherwise would have never heard us. However, real life takes precedence. We can't continue to spend money on the band like we did when we were 20, and with no outside support, (record labels, distro's) it's hard to continue." More...

Grey Skies Fallen have posted the following announcement on myspace:
"Ok, so we've decided to post all three of the Grey Skies Fallen albums on our website. If you're interested, they are yours to download free of charge.
Being unsigned for 11 years has been brutal. It's hard to get your shit out there, so what better way than to give the shit away?
